Bamboo 1

(1 customer review)


The frame is Source Cycles signature bamboo frame.  With a geometry designed to complement the smooth ride quality of the frame while still allowing for more nimble handling.

A carbon fiber fork provides stiff handling.  Hand built 700c wheels feature a flip/flop rear hub for switching between fixed gear and a freewheel.

Front and rear disc brakes will keep you out of trouble when traffic has you in a pinch.

Natural.  Simple.

    I first bought a bamboo frame from the Source Cycle guys two years ago–in fact I was one of their first customers for the bamboo frame. Jacob and Larry really sold me on the renewability of bamboo and their emphasis in the production process to make the carbon-neutral. I’ve watched these guys iterate and innovate and they have truly made incredible strides in the quality, strength, and lightness of the Bamboo 1 frame. This reliably solid frame absorbs the countless potholes I encounter while cycling around Chengdu! After riding a Source Cycles frame, I really don’t think I could ever switch back to a metal frame.
